Chervona Ruta

I found this translation of a Slavic legend that was just too beautiful to pass by... This is an Eglish Translation done by 'Ludwig'. Chervona Ruta translated is "Red Rue" or more commonly known today as "Rue", a rare flower with a green exterior that when found bloomed and proudly displaying a red interior,  had magic properties and could make people fall in love. - CJT

Chervona Ruta

Just admit it to me.
You’re controlling my feelings.
Though my heart was in pain
With your spell it is healing.
In the forest you knew
Of the midsummer flower
That when kissed by the sun
Has a magical power.

Please don’t go searching
For the red bloom this evening
For the love that I have for you
Is true and free.
Just as the rivers
Of the mountains are givers
Of clean water;
You’ve given life to me.

As you visit my dreams
In the green glades of summer
You are coming to me
As you would to a lover
And you don’t need to give
Me a flower or a potion
I shall always be here
You have all my devotion.

Please don’t go searching
For the red bloom this evening
For the love that I have for you
Is true and free.
Just as the rivers
Of the mountains are givers
Of clean water;
You’ve given life to me.
